Easy Loading Tamper Resistant Bags
Help Your Customers Detect Tampering at the Site with Our Security Bags
Tamper evidence is a exceedingly important requirement to add when you are retailing products to consumers. All major retailers require tamper evidence for the vast majority of packaged food items. Some may even require clear properties so users can view what's inside.
If you use a bag without tamper evident or tamper resistant features you're asking for trouble. The added bonus of tamper resistant bags is they are less likely to accidently open in transit because you are not relying on a plastic zipper to close the bag, instead you rely on the strong heat seal to close the bag, and it cannot be easily opened, whether it's clear or not, until it gets to the end user.
Why use a Tamper Evident bag?
A Custom Security Bag is Perfect for Many Products
Tamper Evidence is critical to assuring that your customer knows if a bag has been opened prior to their first use. Since it shows clear signs of tampering, it prevents unauthorized tampering with a bag's contents. Tamper Evidence requires that the end consumer physically alter the packaging in such a way that it is plainly evident that the bag has been opened. For clear plastic bags this is accomplished using a tear notch and heat seal. The consumer uses the tear notch to physically tear away the top of the bag. From that moment forward anyone can plainly see the bag has been opened. These flat poly bags are great for storing cash, card, accessories, and other high security items.
Many state laws require not only tamper evident but also child resistant packaging, the two concepts are very similar yet different. Bundle them together in one bag!

Easy Loading Tamper Resistant Bags
Easy Loading Tamper evident bags are a great option. The most common of which is the bottom loading 3-seal pouch. The top of the bag is pre-sealed at our factory, the bottom of the bag is left completely open. Firstly you can load the security bag with supplies much faster because you do not have to contend with the zippers. Second, you seal the bottom of the bag which is less noticeable, and if you don't seal it fully the product falls out, assuring that your product gets to the consumer intact.
Reclosable Tamper Resistant Bags
Reclosable tamper resistant bags can be either a bottom loading 3-seal pouch with a integrated reclosable zipper. Or any bag which integrates a full heat seal and a reclosable zipper. This style of tamper evident bag allows the consumer to re-seal the pouch using the zipper after they have initially opened the bag. The contents can remain fresh for a longer period as it is slowly consumed. This is the preferred tamper resistant style for any item that is not expected to be a single serve or single use item. With that in mind, it can also be used to store cash and plastic items.
Clear Tamper Evident Bags
Tamper evident bags can be made with clear materials, either fully or partially printed allow you to view inside. Tamper evident and tamper resistance do not require that the product cannot be seen, only that you can clearly see when the pouch as been opened. Clear security bags are great to use as organizers for accessories, supplies, cash, and other currency, especially since users can view what's inside the clear security bags.
